Following several discussions with the owners of Furnace Mill Fisherie
s, the ex members and organisers at W.A.R have been given the pleasure of being able to start a new HFT club at this venue. Many of you will know the place already and aware of the beautiful surroundings it lies in. This leading coarse fishing venue hosts some of the finest competition lakes in the land as well as hosting a superb series of HFT courses and plinking range within the grounds.
Ed & Jane, the owners, have offered the full use of the facilities for competition purposes and allocated various new areas for competition shoots only. Many of you know FM but for those that don't it has the following
30 shot HFT course
12 shot HFT course
Covered plinking range out to 55 yards
Club house (serving food at weekends)
As a group the ex W.A.R members are excited by this opportunity and we want to make a go of it. All being well, and with the owners agreement we would like to be able to host various open events in 2015. We expect our first club event to start in mid-late November.
It wont be long until we seek UKAHFT accreditation and the intention is to forward a team for the Nationals in 2015. Furnace Mill held a round of the Daystate Midland Hunter Series in 2014 which was a great success so the name is out there already.
A website will be up and running very soon so any support you can offer in the meantime would be most welcome.
Prices to be confirmed however membership to the club will include membership to Furnace Mill, so you can go any time you want on the main course to practice with it being open 7 days per week.
So, in closing, we are delighted with this opportunity and we want to get this club off the ground and make it a success. See some of you there.
